Dear Crooked Hillary…..Please Disappear!

Dems, Tell Hillary to Go Back to the Woods

 by A.B. Stoddard  at realclearpolitics:

“Before Hillary Clinton puts more miles on her comeback tour, Democrats should let her know she’s done enough damage and it’s time to pack it in. That won’t stop her, since even after losing to Donald Trump she fancies herself some misunderstood martyr, but it might slow her down a bit.

While they crawl out of the wilderness that both Clinton and President Obama left them in, any moments Democrats spend amusing their failed 2016 nominee as she tries to find a way back to some sort of relevance is more than wasted energy — it’s self-sabotage.

Last week Clinton sat in sanguine reflection at a carefully timed interview at a Women in the World Summit event and blamed everyone but herself for her staggering loss five months ago. After telling New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof that personally she’s just fine, but that “as an American, I’m pretty worried,” she listed the causes for her loss: WikiLeaks, for publishing real emails about her campaign; Russia, for interfering in the campaign; FBI Director James Comey; and misogyny. When asked about future office, she did not rule it out, repeating that she wants to do “interesting things” and has “no plans” to ever run again. It was, well, Clintonian in its predictability.

Days after her remarks, a devastating tell-all was published that renders the same conclusion — no matter how badly things go, it’s never on Hillary. In “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign,” a new, second book on Clinton by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, the toxic Clinton cloud returned, worse than ever before. The book portrays the distrust and dysfunction inside the bunker of a campaign where Clinton never took any blame, and aides were terrified to attempt to break through her denial with suggestions for any course corrections. Huma Abedin, the candidate’s closest aide, “couldn’t be counted on to relay constructive criticism to Hillary without pointing a finger at the critic,” the authors write………”   There’s more below.  Please read on.  Reading about Hillary always increases ones blood pressure:

“French Coming Apart” about the Disappearance of France ………..and America

The French, Coming Apart

A social thinker illuminates his country’s populist divide.

by Christopher Caldwell  at City Journal

“The real-estate market in any sophisticated city reflects deep aspirations and fears. If you had a feel for its ups and downs—if you understood, say, why young parents were picking this neighborhood and drunks wound up relegated to that one—you could make a killing in property, but you also might be able to pronounce on how society was evolving more generally. In 2016, a real-estate developer even sought—and won—the presidency of the United States.

In France, a real-estate expert has done something almost as improbable. Christophe Guilluy calls himself a geographer. But he has spent decades as a housing consultant in various rapidly changing neighborhoods north of Paris, studying gentrification, among other things. And he has crafted a convincing narrative tying together France’s various social problems—immigration tensions, inequality, deindustrialization, economic decline, ethnic conflict, and the rise of populist parties. Such an analysis had previously eluded the Parisian caste of philosophers, political scientists, literary journalists, government-funded researchers, and party ideologues.

Guilluy is none of these. Yet in a French political system that is as polarized as the American, both the outgoing Socialist president François Hollande and his Gaullist predecessor Nicolas Sarkozy sought his counsel. Marine Le Pen, whose National Front dismisses both major parties as part of a corrupt establishment, is equally enthusiastic about his work. Guilluy has published three books, as yet untranslated, since 2010, with the newest, Le crépuscule de la France d’en haut (roughly: “The Twilight of the French Elite”), arriving in bookstores last fall. The volumes focus closely on French circumstances, institutions, and laws, so they might not be translated anytime soon. But they give the best ground-level look available at the economic, residential, and democratic consequences of globalization in France. They also give an explanation for the rise of the National Front that goes beyond the usual imputation of stupidity or bigotry to its voters. Guilluy’s work thus tells us something important about British voters’ decision to withdraw from the European Union and the astonishing rise of Donald Trump—two phenomena that have drawn on similar grievances.

At the heart of Guilluy’s inquiry is globalization. Internationalizing the division of labor has brought significant economic efficiencies. But it has also brought inequalities unseen for a century, demographic upheaval, and cultural disruption. Now we face the question of what—if anything—we should do about it.

A process that Guilluy calls métropolisation has cut French society in two. In 16 dynamic urban areas (Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Aix-en-Provence, Toulouse, Lille, Bordeaux, Nice, Nantes, Strasbourg, Grenoble, Rennes, Rouen, Toulon, Douai-Lens, and Montpellier), the world’s resources have proved a profitable complement to those found in France. These urban areas are home to all the country’s educational and financial institutions, as well as almost all its corporations and the many well-paying jobs that go with them. Here, too, are the individuals—the entrepreneurs and engineers and CEOs, the fashion designers and models, the film directors and chefs and other “symbolic analysts,” as Robert Reich once called them—who shape the country’s tastes, form its opinions, and renew its prestige. Cheap labor, tariff-free consumer goods, and new markets of billions of people have made globalization a windfall for such prosperous places. But globalization has had no such galvanizing effect on the rest of France. Cities that were lively for hundreds of years—Tarbes, Agen, Albi, Béziers—are now, to use Guilluy’s word, “desertified,” haunted by the empty storefronts and blighted downtowns that Rust Belt Americans know well.”

Minnesota Ditsy DEM Kelly Fenton in Action to Open Borders for VOTING…Come one, come all!

Andy Cilek of Minnesota Voters Alliance sent the following message regarding Minnesota VOTERS AND VOTING.

He is concerned……but so is Ditsy Dem, Kelly Fenton.

Ditsy Dem, (please excuse the repetition) Kelly, I am guessing, is ditsy worried about our Minnesota’s response to Ditsy, Hillary Clinton’s vote tally in this past November 8, 2016 election.   Ms. Clinton kept the Ditsy DFL Governor Mark Dayton state BLUE by a breath.

Today’s DFLers are uneasy, however.   They are seeking more guaranteed votes to count.   The State has been becoming too unditsy lately.    Counting the dead who vote isn’t doing the trick for leftists to feel comfortable voting night.

The Minnesota DFL, the state’s  corrupt version of the Democrat Party, hasn’t been particularly persuaded by anything honest, forthright, and Godfearing for years.  Not long ago,  the DFLers recounted the actual vote tally  in the state’s Dem 8th District enough times,  including ballots out-numbering precinct voters, to declare the  Creep of Congress,  the obnoxious Dem Al Franken winner over Senator Norman Coleman by 300 votes.   Minnesota lefties adore creeps.   Creeps make them feel at home with whats on television, hoping they can compete with the stars in today’s California’s Sanctuary.

Minnesota has a Swedish heritage.  Its DFLers, like today’s Stockholmers in real Sweden, apparently  feel guilty about their honest past, their Lutheranism and white skin that apparently went with it…..bored with  TRUTH, they have discovered the excitement of rape, pillage, and burn and the modernity of ignorance and violence that goes with it.

Kurt Daudt, a Republican who happens to be Speaker of the House of MN’s Representatives, seems concerned about Kelly Fenton’s Open Days of voting often.

He sent the following FYI:    PLEASE READ WHAT DITSIES ARE UP TO THESE DAYS!

FYI – In response to Representative Kelly Fenton’s recent response which many of you have seen, in which she attempts to defend her ridiculous election bill, I just sent out the email below today to all the republican legislators regarding House File (HF) – 463.

Please read the email, and consider contacting EACH of the legislators listed below. In addition, I have provided a link to call your own representative as well.

While this may seem like a long battle, the session will be over in approx 4 weeks. Freedom isn’t free! We have to continue to fight when it counts the most! Expressing your views makes a BIG DIFFERENCE!

Contact the following Legislators:

Rep Kurt Daudt, Speaker of the House

rep.kurt.daudt@house.mn 6651) 296-5364

Rep Joyce Peppin, Majority Leader

rep.joyce.peppin@house.mn (651)296-7806

Rep. Tim O’Driscoll, Chair Elections Committee

rep.tim.odriscoll@house.mn (651)296-7808

Rep. Kelly Fenton, HF 463 primary Author

rep.kelly.fenton@house.mn (651)296-1147

Here is the link to locate your own Representative.

http://www.house.leg.state.mn.us/members/hmem.asp

Please don’t delay, the election omnibus is likely to go to the floor next week followed by the conference committee perhaps the following week!!

Your legislator will likely respond back to you, please don’t hesitate to ask them a FOLLOW-UP question if you are not satisfied with their response or you’d just like further clarification from them.

Happy Easter!

OBAMA’S SPYINGS DIDN’T START WITH TRUMP

Obama Political Spying Scandal: Trump Associates Were Not the First Targets

by Andrew C. McCarthy  at National Review:

“This list includes Dennis Kucinich and investigative journalists. In 2011, Dennis Kucinich was still a Democratic congressman from Ohio. But he was not walking in lockstep with President Obama — at least not on Libya. True to his anti-war leanings, Kucinich was a staunch opponent of Obama’s unauthorized war against the Qaddafi regime. Kucinich’s very public efforts included trying to broker negotiations between the administration and the Qaddafi regime, to whom the White House was turning a deaf ear. It was in that context that he took a call in his Washington office from Saif al-Islam Qaddafi, the ruler’s son and confidant. Four years later, as he recalled in a recent opinion piece, Kucinich learned that the call had been recorded and leaked to the Washington Times…….”   Please read on below to learn more about the devious Obama:

CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST OBAMA’S LOIS LERNER?

Rep. Peter Roskam: Justice Department Needs To Look Into Criminal Charges Against Lois Lerner

by Ian Schwartz  at realclearpolitics:

REP. PETER ROSKAM (R-IL): The Obama Administration was very dismissive about the crimes that we believe Lois Lerner committed. And those are strong words that I’m using but the House Ways and Means Committee voted out a criminal referral to the Department of Justice which was completely dismissed by the Department of Justice. President Obama was on television at one point in the midst of the investigation, Stuart, and he said there is not a smidgen of wrongdoing here.

So, look, we think that Lois Lerner did particularly two things wrong. Number one, she denied people due process and equal protection of the law based on their political philosophy. We’re convinced that there’s overwhelming evidence to suggest that that’s true. And that’s a felony. Secondly, we believe that she lied to the Inspecter General of the Treasury Department when they were investigating that very thing.

What we want is a new Justice Department to take a fresh look at this while we are well within the statute of limitations, and if they can move forward with a prosecution.

Lefty Flake Andrea Mitchell Covers for Obama’s Chronic Liar Susan Rice

In Andrea Mitchell they found the “right person” to ask Susan Rice a question

by Jazz Shaw  at HotAir:

“There’s been a flurry of discussion over the “big interview” yesterday, when Susan Rice finally decided to answer the charges made about her unmasking members of the Trump team during the transition. If you listen to any liberal outlets you’ll hear that the matter has been settled. Question asked and answered! And the quote being repeated in these circles ad nauseam is the segment where Rice says, “That’s absolutely false.”

So… nothing to see here, right? Can’t we all just move along and get on with our lives? Well, we could if we actually had an answer to real question which everyone wanted to hear. The problem is that Rice decided to go to the one person she could count on to talk about it, but never actually ask that question. You can watch the interview and read the transcript at Real Clear Politics but you’ll notice one thing immediately which sticks out like a sore thumb. The transcript doesn’t begin with Andrea Mitchell. It starts off with Rice. The reason, which you’ll find if you watch the video clip, is that Mitchell begins the segment by basically recapping the “firestorm” (her word) which has arisen from the charges claimed regarding what Rice may or may not have done. She concludes her rather vague summary by saying, “How do you respond?”………and there is more, so click below:

How Long Must Our Universities be Savaged by Feminazis, Black Racists, and the Usual Marxist Gangs?

A Plan to Reform Our Failing Universities

by David Solway  at American Thinker:

“How can we save our universities from the rot that has invaded their precincts, eroding the traditional core of Western literary, cultural, scientific, technological, and professional instruction? What would such a makeover involve?

To begin with, Title IX should be abolished a.s.a.p. Originally intended to prevent sexual and racial discrimination — a well-intentioned but ill-conceived bipartisan measure signed into law in 1972 — Title IX has been corrupted beyond recognition, trampling due process in sexual harassment cases, feeding the campus rape panic, curtailing free speech rights in an effort to avoid “offense,” diluting the curriculum via “trigger warnings” and “microaggression” claims, establishing a culture of grievance, allowing talks and lectures by conservative speakers to be cancelled or disrupted, gutting men’s sports programs, and surrendering to the most absurd and untenable student demands. This abomination was promoted under the rubric of “equality” in a world where natural and imprescriptible inequalities abound in both the physical and intellectual domains. The casualties are merit and individuality. As R. B. Parish writes, in the name of equality our universities “renounce culture and strive to reduce everyone down to a common level… There must be no excellence.”

Additionally, measures should be taken to prevent universities from raising tuition fees irresponsibly (which, among other advantages, would also go a long way toward reducing unsustainable student debt). According to HSDC’s (Homeland Security Defense Coalition) annual report for 2016, the average cost of tuition fees in the U.S. is in the vicinity of $33,000 per academic year, rising in the elite universities to $60,000 and more. This is unacceptable. As I’ve written previously, “Tuition fees will need to come down, perhaps by decoupling Pell grants from tuition hikes,” and subsequently capped at a rate tied to inflation.

Universities will then have to devise ways of living within their means, by drastically shrinking administrative bloat, reducing professorial salaries by a percentage to be determined, and downsizing or eliminating Humanities departments that are either irrelevant or marginal, that is, courses of study that cannot deliver basic competence in reading and writing, knowledge of civics and history, familiarity with the classics of the Western tradition, and economic productivity……..”    Please continue reading below:
